Housing and Travel
Visiting learners and/or their faculty of
medicine are responsible for their travel expenses and for sourcing and
covering the cost of their housing.
However, NOSM does maintain many student housing units in communities
across Northern Ontario, intended for students of NOSM. If these are available during the time of
your rotation, they can be made available at a subsidized rate of
Because we must prioritize the needs of
students and residents registered at NOSM, we are not able to confirm housing
until 4-8 weeks prior to the start of your rotation. As such, we encourage learners to secure their
own housing. Once your placement is
confirmed, NOSM can provide contact information for people in your placement
community, who can help you source
housing during your placement.
NOSM is pleased to invite visiting undergraduate learners to apply for electives placements through the AFMC Student Portal.
You are required to apply 16 weeks in
advance of your desired electives.
The portal will guide you through the
process. You will be prompted to upload
necessary documents, and you will receive e-mail reminders and notifications
throughout the process.
We look forward to receiving your
applications and welcoming you to Northern Ontario.
